ARCHITECTS Resurface with Blistering "Hereafter" Music Video
Today, Architects announced their new album, Holy Hell, out on Nov. 9 via Epitaph Records. It marks the band’s first release since the untimely passing of Tom Searle, Architect’s founding guitarist and twin brother of drummer Dan Searle. The band recruited Sylosis' Josh Middleton and today released their first new single.
“In those first months after Tom’s death, I didn’t deal with it at all and I felt so unhappy and anxious,” Dan explains. “I’d ignored it and just tried to cope. But I knew that at some point, I had to learn from it.”
“It’s at times like that you ask yourself, ‘What is left?’” adds vocalist Sam Carter. “As a group of friends, we had to find something.”
“Ultimately, there were two choices,” Dan says. “Feel sorry for yourself, and believe the world to be a horrible place and let it defeat you. Or let it inspire us to live the life that Tom would have wanted us to live. I was very worried about people taking away a despondent message from the album. I felt a level of responsibility to provide a light at the end of the tunnel for people who are going through terrible experiences.”
